The National Hansen's Disease Museum would like to hear the valuable opinions and impressions of our customers and reflect them in our activities. We would like to introduce some of the "opinions and impressions that we have received from our customers."

Female (50s), nurse

Human rights violations due to infectious diseases, medical progress and social concepts, human rights violations as a result of legislative delay isolation policies, and learning that the Japanese have learned various lessons from Hansen's Disease Made me think.

Female (30's), nurse

I Hansen's Disease but I have never tried to learn it, so I regret it. Perhaps Hansen's Disease when I was in elementary school, but at that time I just wondered what happened to my face, and I remember not worrying deeply. There is a possibility that new diseases will be discovered in the future, but instead of being indifferent at that time, we will take action from the perspective of what we can do, thinking that suffering will not last for a long time. I want to.

Female (50s), nurse

I was able to learn about the history of people who have been detained for a long time under the national Leprosy Prevention Law Leprosy patients have been forced to live irreparable lives due to discrimination and human rights violations due to national policy, they still found hope to live and felt that they should not forget how they fought for their rights. .. I also learned that it is one of the roles of nurses to speak out before discrimination and prejudice spread, saying that diseases that can be prevented with correct knowledge can be prevented.

Female (40s), nurse

I only remembered that I had learned Hansen's Disease Mycobacterium leprae when I was a student, but this time I was able to know and learn about Hansen's Disease

・ There is still a belief that the country and society are correct, who creates prejudice and discrimination. I want to live by keeping in mind what I judge and how I can make a proper claim when my opinion is in the minority, and that nothing can be born from prejudice or discrimination.

・ Hansen's Disease to posterity and let as many people as possible come into contact with it. I would like to share my visit to the museum with my family, friends, and friends.

Female (40s), nurse

・ Japan continued to be isolated even though it was said that isolation was unnecessary in the world. Nothing is more terrifying than human rights abuses of humans in power.

・ You must not be prejudiced or discriminated against, but you may be unaware of it, so you must pay attention to the words you convey in communication before building relationships.

・ Although the tour was held without any knowledge, I was able to gain a great deal of knowledge in one day by listening to the lecture after reading the materials in advance before the tour. Due to the peculiarity of the disease (delayed development of therapeutic agents, characteristics of sequelae, etc.), it has a peculiar history, and because it was isolated, I think that there were many things that I did not know until now. It was a very nice day.

・ On the other hand, probably because the community was formed, self-help and mutual aid were functioning, and I felt that it was an area where there was no lonely death, and I was made to think about what the area should be. There is no forced quarantine in the areas where we will work, but I think there are many isolated people, especially in urban areas, so I would like to value support so that even isolated people do not spill.

Female (30's), nurse

I felt that the forced quarantine was a human rights issue, and that the quarantine was appropriate in view of the living environment and the elucidation of the illness at that time. It is wonderful that the parties fought against the country and regained their position.

・ When I visited when I was a nursing student, I had time to communicate with the people concerned in the room, and now I understand how valuable it was, and learned the preciousness of the once-in-a-lifetime meeting. ..

・ Inside the sanatorium, bullying often overlapped with the events at Auschwitz described in the book "Night and Fog," and I felt the weakness of human beings and the "power to survive despite them."

・ Hansen's Disease from my own life, I first Hansen's Disease, and I became more motivated to accumulate "what I can do for peace" every day.

・ I thought that the history of Hansen's Disease And since I had never considered the influence of politics until now, I also noticed that my view of things changed during this training.

Female (40s), nurse

In a repressed life, I had time to think "what is life?", And many made a name for themselves in the arts. The representative is the writer Tamio Hojo. The details of the containment life are described in "The First Night of Life". As I have read, it was a work of high literary value. It depicts a mutual aid life in which the patient cares for the patient. When I read it, I was surprised that such an inhumane thing was happening, but it feels like the model of a symbiotic society that we are aiming for today.

Male (30's), nurse

・ I Hansen's Disease and the harmful effects of disseminating false knowledge and the disadvantages that result.

・ I was able to learn from the museum and videos the understanding of local residents, local governments, and the country that was obtained as a result of enlightenment and sustainable activities that greatly involved the region.

Male (40s), nurse

I thought that I didn't know much about the history of Hansen's Disease It was about being quarantined and infringing on human rights. Hansen's Disease I learned about medical progress and social concepts, delays in legislation, and human rights violations due to infectious diseases (lessons learned from other infectious diseases). What is the background of the difference from this world that the isolation policy was issued in the world in 1956, but the isolation continued in Japan and the Leprosy Prevention Law I wondered if it was. At the museum, I could see the works of people who have lived hard even in the closed society of isolation. Hansen's Disease the infectious disease called leprosy was an invisible symptom, it wouldn't have been so bad, it is also human rights discrimination to judge by appearance. Was there any medical problem with the delay in treatment? The fact that there was a medical professional whose scientific basis was pushed by rumors and swallowed up by the social concept is different from the present, but medical professionals so as not to make such a mistake again. I thought that I had to keep in mind that I would have solid knowledge.

Female (40s), nurse

Hansen's Disease isolation policy has continued in Japan even after the world quit, and has long afflicted the target population. From a broad perspective, I would like to be able to support the happiness of people by questioning whether the opinions of the government and others are really correct.

Female (40s), nurse

・ I'm sorry I didn't understand Hansen's Disease I didn't learn in detail at school. There was only recognition that he had been quarantined and discriminated against unnecessarily. Among them, I respect the courage to stand up for the trial. Unfortunately, the Storyteller are also aging and it is difficult to hear the story directly. The museum is valuable. The thoughts of the people who made it were packed.

・ There were many things to leave in the museum. I plan to visit with interested friends to take a closer look again to gain a better understanding.

Male (20's), college student

First of all, I'm glad I came. It was good to know. The exhibition was very easy to understand, and I was able to understand the history of Hansen's Disease Ignorance is not a sin, but I have neglected my efforts to know it, and I have found the foolishness of being swept away. Hansen's Disease is just a prominent example, and there are probably many other similar problems. I want to create an opportunity to face the problem in my own way.

Male (20's), college student

I was vaguely surprised that the patient was working. There were many expressions, and I felt that the patient was indirectly thinking about what he was thinking.

Female (20's), college student

The exhibition in the clean building was also very easy to see and interesting, using a lot of video, audio, and actual materials. I thought that the "negative" memory of such a country should be passed down to future generations, and that such a sad history should not be repeated.

Female (30's), housewife

First of all, I was surprised at the very bright and beautiful museum. I was able to calmly and slowly Hansen's Disease Now that I know everything, it's an opportunity to reassess my existence value. I want to tell the children.

Male (30's), teacher

When I visited the museum two years ago, I was able to hear Mr. Hirasawa's live lecture, but I think it may be difficult to hear the voices of the actual recuperators in the future. I'm sorry. I would like to use your facility for extracurricular learning and take some good measures to help students develop ethics. Thanking you in advance.

Female (40s), teacher

This is my third visit to the museum, but all of them are opportunities for tours at school, and every time I think about what I can do now, there were situations where I couldn't reach a concrete activity. I think that the chances of actually hearing stories will decrease due to the aging of the Storyteller I was able to think and learn about various things from the VTR that Mr. Sagawa talked about, but I hope that you will create a place where you can actually talk to them directly. I would like to convey what I thought and felt today to the people around me.

Female (teen), junior high school student

Hansen's Disease only knew a little about leprosy, but when I saw the exhibition, I learned about the history of the school and the facts that I couldn't tell at all in the health class. I strongly felt that I could never repeat it.

Female (teen), elementary school student

Hansen's Disease discriminate against people took to, hurt the family, Hansen's Disease 're hurt most I think mortifying also the person who took to eliminate the distinction Is because it is family, with less these people, to the embittered I hope people will get rid of it as much as possible.

Female (teen), college student

I major in sociology at university. I visited The National Hansen's Disease Museum to find out about the people who were forced to live in isolation from society. It was an opportunity to imagine how unhelpful and painful it was for him to be treated as an abomination by the people around him. In particular, I felt that I couldn't finish the exhibition about children learning to read and write to exchange letters with their families. He taught me many points to reflect on for the future society.

Female (40s), nurse

Hansen's Disease I learned that leprosy was regarded as a "national shame," I felt sadness that I couldn't put into words. Even now that the law is in place, I am just surprised and helpless at the magnitude of the impact of discrimination and prejudice when I think that there are people who can't go home even though they think of their hometown. I think what we can do is to have a connection. I want to cherish the connection with the present age in history, the connection with myself who feels uncomfortable with discrimination, the connection with each person, and those.

Female (80s), housewife

Hansen's Disease so it was great to see them on DVD. I was full of feelings of regret due to lack of recognition, and I cried. I am grateful for this opportunity. I would like to encourage everyone to visit the museum and get closer to the pain of those who have been deprived of their human rights.

Tohokushinseien is local, and it is not well known locally. I don't know if that's a good thing, but I've never seen a resident. Shortly before that, I learned what it was like in the media. I came here to find out the facts, but it was good for me. It is human beings who are scared and attack people who are different from themselves. I think it is important to let the world know even a little, but with the diversification of ideas, some people will plan further attacks. I gained the power to confront it as cancer.
